Youth usually associate with the time of turbulent and great love, the search for a life companion, and the creation of a family. At a young age, people are psychologically ready for proximity; they feel the need for another person, for social reciprocity. So, finding a partner and a marriage become one of the most important stages in the life of any person.
People fall in love, meet – and, after all, such relationships often end in weddings and grow into a qualitatively new stage – the creation of a family, the birth of children. This, in turn, lies in the very nature of humans. Indeed, the absence of their own family can lead to a sense of isolation and deep loneliness. Love helps to overcome these moments. The desire to devote own life to another person, to live with them through common dreams and plans, can become the basis of marriage and the further creation of a family.
The ability to create a family requires not only psychological readiness but also compatibility in many spheres of life: from the sexual sphere and to everyday matters. In addition, family life involves creation and maintenance of a common comfortable psychological space. Each member of the family decides what they want: to be a friend for the partner, a lover or a spouse. The birth and upbringing of children is the next stage in marital relations, based on trust and awareness of shared responsibility for a new life. The birth of a child changes the self-awareness of the family: a man turns into a father, and a woman – into a mother. The toddler gives the mother the feeling of her own significance and psychologically protects her from life’s difficulties and troubles. To the father, the child gives an opportunity to demonstrate his nobility, to feel like a defender and a real man.
